Thanks for your questions, they are always interesting!.
Male privilege is something that I do not feel I have had so much…. But many people have told me just how lucky I was to have it. This has made me, at times, extremely angry because I didn’t want it or ask for it and quite frankly I’d have hit that magical girl button if I was ever in range of one.
I have worked in IT and I do know that I have been taken more seriously than many cohorts… I’d like to believe that it was because my ideas were worth it, but often I wonder if it’s just because I’m allowed to “speak louder”. To be clear it wasn’t just the women, and I honestly prefer working with the women developers, but in dark moments it worries me.
Yes, I would give this privilege up to live as a woman.
